Since it opened in 1988, Ansley Golf Club - Settindown Creek in Roswell has fostered a lofty place in the state's golfing circles. The club is often the first mentioned when conversation turns to determining the best courses in Georgia. And that's high praise indeed in a state that's loaded with strong candidates.
GSGA Senior Director of Rules & Competitions Layne Williams:
"It's got its defenses. You've got to play hard and play well to get around in decent shape."
Defending Champion David Noll Jr.:
"It's a man-sized golf course. There are spots around these greens where it's an absolute bogey. Once you get your tee ball in the fairway is when the fun begins."
Ansley Director of Golf Phil Taylor:
"It's a player's golf course. And it's a difficult player's golf course.
Our members like to host events that have some meaning. Everyone is excited to have the best players come back and test it."
Ansley Director of Agronomy Courtney Young:
"This course will reward you with birdies and punish you for poor play. You can put a score together, but it's difficult to do it over four days."
